    My vft is doing great. One new trap just opened and it's about an inch long. I have 6 more on the way. Does anyone think that it would be worth taking a cutting? And if I do, which leaf should I cut? A new one or an old one? I eventually want thousands upon thousands of vfts to take over the world with.

    unless u genetically mutate VFT to walk, grow large traps that are able to fit human beings in and produce strong acids, and have the mental capacity to do your biddings, then u wouldnt be able to take over the world with just reg. VFT
    as for cuttings, always ensure they are in a high humidity enviroment, with good lighting, and that they dont rot.
    also, rooting hormone (Rootone, Shultz rooting formula) encourages, u guessed it, roots to grow [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    one more thing, its not really cutting, its more like pulling. make sure you get some nice whitish rhizome to ensure rooting

    Hmm...genetically mutating as we speak. Muhahahaha. Beware Iraqi insurgents. I'll take a leaf "pulling" tomorrow. Thanks for the help.

    You have it all wrong. VFTs already control the world. They have these silly humans feeding and watering them. We are slaves to these little plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    That's a good point. A whole lot of my time is spent caring for my vft. darn them and their mind controlling techniques.

    If I remember my Spiderman correctly, all you need is an accident with a dose of radiation and you should be on your way.

    I have so, so many strong reservations
    Should I go and perform mutilations?

    Using any type of rooting hormone will greatly decrease your sucess. It's because of certain elements in the product that cause VFT's to die, kind of like how tap water is bad for your plants. So you are better off just sticking the cuttings in some live Sphagnum moss and wait till traps form.

    I'm just supposed to cut the leaf part, and not the trap? Yesterday I cut a leaf with a trap on it because it had a black spot on it, and stuck it in a pot of potting soil and put it under a leaky faucet outside, and it's still ok. I'm wondering if it's taking a while to die, or if it will actually live. This will be an interesting experiment. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
